    Currently trying to downgrade to 4.1 through iTunes but it keeps hanging up. It gets to about ~30% and just sits there.

    I have all SHSH's saved and have changed the host file to point to the Cydia servers but still nothing. Anyone have any insight to this?

    Kinda urgent :D

    Thanks.

    Do you by chance have Wi-Fi Sync on your computer?

    Nope. Used to have it but I had to reformat both my phone and my laptops HD.

    Okay. Because Wi-Fi Sync has been know to cause that issues. Have you edited your host files?

    Yes, it currently read as follows;

    ##
    # Host Database
    #
    # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
    # when the system is booting. Do not change this entry.
    ##
    127.0.0.1 localhost
    255.255.255.255 broadcasthost
    ::1 localhost
    fe80::1%lo0 localhost
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    #127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com

    Not sure if one of the gs.apple.com entries need to be deleted or not. The first one was already in there and I had read that i needed to add the 127 address as well.

    Erase that one. That's Apple's server. The 74.x.x is Cydia's server.

    OK, I'll give that a try and see if it works. I keep getting a 1013 error message so hopefully this should clear it up. Thanks.

    If 1013, 1015, or 1604 pops up use TinyUmbrella to kick the iPhone out of recovery.

    I tried that a couple times last night. Everytime I did so, it would kick me out but then the phone kept going back to the "Connect to iTunes" splash screen on the phone and prompt me to restart the whole process again. It was quite an infuriating/vicious little cycle I had going on last night. I don't need to have TU running the whole time right? I just need for it to kick me out of recovery and that should be it?

    Yeah, you just need TinyUmbrella to kick out of recovery. Also restore with an official ipsw not a custom one.

    OK. Yeah I downloaded the official 4.1 IPSW and that was the one I was trying to use last night. I tried the change USB ports, restore on different computer, blah blah blah but to no avail :( I'll give it another whirl tonight and hopefully things will pan out this time. Thanks again for all your help.
